The NY Jets have added an influx of new talent this offseason to help bolster a roster that needed some tweaking following an injury-riddled disappointment of a 2023 season.

The result is a roster that, if healthy, should legitimately be able to compete for a Super Bowl in 2024. The 2024 NFL Draft brought a few new players into the fold, further solidifying this as one of the best Jets rosters in recent memory.

But the introduction of new players isn't always good news for certain members of the roster. Increased competition may be good for the team, but it's not necessarily in the best interest of individual players.

Let's take a look at five Jets players whose jobs might be in jeopardy following the conclusion of the 2024 NFL Draft.

5. Jarrick Bernard-Converse, S, NY Jets

The Jets used a sixth-round pick on LSU defensive back Jarrick Bernard-Converse in last year's draft. Unfortunately, a foot injury forced Bernard-Converse to miss half of his rookie season, as he went on to appear in just eight games, playing almost exclusively on special teams.

The Louisiana native was penciled into a role as the Jets' fourth safety entering this year's draft, but he faces increased competition for that job now. The Jets added two defensive backs on Day 3 of the draft, both of whom could push Bernard-Converse for playing time.

Mr. Irrelevant selection Jaylen Key is an obvious direct competitor, but even fifth-round pick Qwan'tez Stiggers should be seen as more of an overall defensive back. The Jets might consider moving him to safety full-time as they did with Bernard-Converse.

Bernard-Converse isn't guaranteed a roster spot entering the summer, and the Jets' additions during the draft are part of the reason why.
